In Washington, D.C., Venus Rasmussen, a very wealthy, elderly grand dame of Beltway high society, is in fear for her life, sure that someone is trying to kill her. Is it a desperate family member? Or the killer from her dark past? Either way, the suspects are many and the repercussions dire—and Savich and Sherlock must race to find out if she’s really in danger—or just delusional. Her two offspring, their children, and assorted family black sheep have always been after her money, but Venus has always been generous—so why, at age eighty-six, are they trying to kill her, by both poison and gun?
And in Los Angeles, a serial killer is on the loose, already having killed six young actresses and stolen their computers. Savich assigns Special Agent Cam Wittier to run the case, in part because she’s the daughter of two veteran character actresses living in the Colony in Malibu, the scene of one of the murders. Cam knows show business, and she knows how things work in the Colony, so she’s perfect for the job. Before long, Cam the hunter becomes the hunted when the killer targets her. Can Cam stop him, before it’s too late?
